On Patrol with Tony (Neighbourhood Warden)

We'd arranged to join Tony on his shift this morning. He'd got in touch with Bob and Margaret, a couple who'd been together for 65 years, had met when they were 17 and had been born and raised in Greets Green! Got some great stories off both of them, from tales about courting behind the back of the Bakery to swimming for a mile or two up and down the canals!! Margaret really enjoyed using the digital camera and seeing the results of the photos that she'd taken straight away. Really interesting stuff.

Also went for a walk with Tony around the back of the Rec& made plans to join him again in the near future to talk with people who are opposed to the redevelopment of the Rec and the demolition of peoples homes involved in this.
